There are around 800 links (ca. 500 in posts, 250 in comments) on Stack Overflow pointing to Quora (using the September 2013 dump). Quora now forces visitors to register to the entirety of a page (e.g. if you want to try), which makes those links pretty useless/annoying for non-Quora users. Adding
?share=1 at the end of the Quora URLs allows visitors to see the entire page without any login window (e.g. if you want to try). So, how about automatically adding
?share=1 at the end of URLs pointing to Quora?
EDIT, as the post got -8 and many downvoters seem to have assumed that the
?share=1 is some ephemeral hack and/or goes against Quora policies: the
?share=1 is officially supported and promoted by Quora:
Marc Bodnick (Leads Quora business & community teams, executive at Quora):
Open any Quora URL. If you come across a Quora link anywhere and you want to read it without being asked to join Quora, you can add the text "?share=1" to the end of the URL. Example: http://www.quora.com/Hostage-Situations/What-does-it-feel-like-to-be-a-hostage-negotiator?share=1
